Hey there,

I've been a Linux Mint user for a while now (since 9) at work and at home, but am new to the forum. I'm also a volunteer and steering committee member of Free Geek Providence ( where we recycle and refurbish donated systems. Refurbished systems are configured with Linux Mint and donated to individuals and organizations in need. We also teach computer literacy and basic to advanced Linux usage and maintenance.

I love Mint's easy installation, its ease of use for newbies, and convenience for veteran Linux users. I'll keep an eye on the forums and answer questions where I can. I'd also love to talk more about what we're doing at Free Geek Providence and connect with anyone doing (or hoping to do) similar work.

All the best!

Hi theaphro, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums! FreeGeek sounds awesome, more so for using Linux Mint of course :wink:

Be sure also to check out the Community website (ideas, tutorials, and hardware and software reviews), and the Cinnamon Spices website for adding even more themes, applets and extensions to Cinnamon.

You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.

Have fun with Linux Mint :wink:

yasus... Welcome to the Mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
